After the great success of 2011's Pensioners' Parliament organised by Age Sector Platform, we are looking forward to 2012's two-day event which begins tomorrow (Tuesday 21.5.12).
2011's Pensioners' Parliament attracted many people throughout the North and generated much media coverage. Its impact even sent ripples through the corridors of power as local politicians realized that their success could very well depend upon the "Grey Vote". 2012's Pensioners' Parliament promises to have even greater impact.
2012's Pensioners' Parliament
Rights 4 Seniors and Advice NI will be one among many organisations with an information stall so make sure you call over to say hello.
Visitors to this year's event can register at 10 o' clock on Tuesday and Wednesday. Aside from speeches by the Older People's Commissioner and special guest panelists (including our own Ryan Fitzsimmons), we also have the great honour once more of listening to the indefatigable, Seamus Lynch. Seamus is now working with Age Sector Platform and will be facilitating the discussions on the floor.
- Fear of crime
- Health and social care
- Welfare reform
- The rising cost of living
For further information on the local parliaments, visit the Age Sector Platform website. Otherwise we look forward to seeing you at the Holiday Inn, Ormeau Avenue, Belfast (map and details).
